Rare WW1 Our Lady of Victory / Song of Solomon Medal – Stamped Hallmarked SilverRare WW1 Our Lady of Victory / Song of Solomon Medal – Stamped Hallmarked SilverRare WW1 Our Lady of Victory / Song of Solomon Medal – Stamped Hallmarked SilverRare WW1 Our Lady of Victory / Song of Solomon Medal – Stamped Hallmarked Silver

This unusual Catholic medal likely dates from World War I based on its wording and imagery. It is stamped instead of cast with varying levels of detail. On the face is a noble rendering of Our Lady and the Child Jesus brandishing a cross and standing atop a slender crescent moon.

Around the slightly raised cuff are the words, "Terrible comme une armee rangee en bataille." This translates to, "Terrible as an army set in battle." As the Virgin Most Powerful, Mary is often given martial significance and Song 6:10 of the Songs of Solomon, refers to Mary in this language. The somewhat jumbled imagery beneath Mary also bears this out... lances, the hilts of swords in tiny letters at the center, "N.D. Armee P.P.N."

On the verso is a wonderfully crisp, full-figure image of Jesus revealing His Sacred Heart. The cuff is especially pronounced from the stamped manufacture as are the words, "Coeur Sacre de Jesus ayez pitie de nous" or "Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us."

This is a truly rare medal of Our Lady of Victory, in manufacture and in symbolism, that would be a superb addition to your collection. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
